Bai Signs on For Another Year


engage Super League and Carnegie World Club Champions, Bradford Bulls, have today announced that Marcus Bai has agreed a one year contract with the club and will remain at the Grattan Stadium until the end of 2007.
Bai has made 23 appearances and scored 12 tries this season after signing from Leeds Rhinos at the end of last year.  He was named ‘Back of the Year’ at the club’s Player of the Year Awards earlier this week.
Commenting on his decision to extend his contract, Marcus Bai said: "I’m happy to be staying next year and happy to be wanted by Bradford. They are one of the best clubs in Super League and I’m looking forward to it. But that’s next year and first we’ve got some business this week."
"Steve and Gareth Davies have been great and I was pleased with the way the club went about the negotiations. I did think this would be my last year but Steve seemed to think the other way. I came back after the injury in July feeling really positive and was happy after my first match at Wakefield so I carried on and knew I wouldn’t regret doing another season.  I’ll be giving everything I have this year and next. Hopefully giving something back."
Bulls Coach Steve McNamara said: "Age is no barrier with this bloke. He is just getting stronger and stronger so we’re delighted he has decided to stay. The contribution Marcus has made on and off the park is invaluable and he is one of the most respected players in the competition. We missed him dearly when he was out part way through the season as his contribution to the team is huge and it continues to be so at the back end of the season.”
